i dont' about hp wise, but it keeps the engine coooler... i dont' know if it was a requirement for the k24, because the oem si radiator did its job, but that sprung a leak, so i was forced to get this one... because ever one wanted another radiator for like400.. i got this orginial one for 150... but it was beat up...i got this koyo for 300, and honda wanted like 3 for just the radiator... so aftermarket was cheaper. i need a fan now... its goign to sound like a leaf blower when it turns on...lol

....so we're looking at 1-3 hp on a d17 w/ a koyo radiator? If so, isn't that a better dollars to hp ratio than a CAI?

....ok, i didn't think a radiator would technically increase hp... that's why i was surprised. I assume it just makes the engine run cooler, so there may be some performance difference...

flex-a-lite fans all the way

gratz on radiator.

Koyo Radiator increases potential for more horsepower but really doesn't give you any. Will take longer for your engine to warm up though so take not of that.
